Read Deuteronomy 5:12-15


Read Deuteronomy 5:12-15

12 “‘Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy, as I, the Lord your God, have commanded you. 13 You have six days in which to do your work, 14 but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me. On that day no one is to work—neither you, your children, your slaves, your animals, nor the foreigners who live in your country. Your slaves must rest just as you do. 15 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt, and that I, the Lord your God, rescued you by my great power and strength. That is why I command you to observe the Sabbath.

Good News Translation (GNT)
Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society


The LORD wants everyone to know that they are loved and liberated:  You, your children, your slaves, your animals, foreigners...  Rest is a sign of God's love.


Help me to rest in you O God.
